These days, it seems the only way to communicate is through text or email. Even good old fashioned phone calls are becoming more few and far between. However, I am (and have always been) a firm believer in the power of a handwritten note.
When you write someone a letter, you’re giving them a gift. You’re giving them a piece of your heart that’s tangible that they can keep forever. I have saved so many notes that people have given me over the years and I love going back over them again and again. It seems like I can almost hear them saying the words they’ve written, I can imagine the hand gestures they would be doing if they were right in front of me, and I get something new out of their letters each time I reread them. What a gift!
I encourage you, this week, to take the time to sit down and write someone a note. It doesn’t have to be long, it just has to let them know you’re thinking about them. You might just make someone’s day!

And most recently, I’ve been drooling over all the beautiful handmade stationary designs by Hello Sundays Paper, which is out of Santa Barbara, California.
